Extract from Rhys Dipshan's article "Utah Approves Rocket Lawyer for New Regulatory Sandbox"
Less than a month after Utah approved a regulatory sandbox, online legal service provider Rocket Lawyer has announced it has been accepted to participate in the pilot program. The state’s regulatory sandbox allows nonlawyers to provide certain traditional legal services and authorizes new legal business models and service delivery approaches for a two-year period, after which the state’s Supreme Court will decide on the program’s future.
Rocket Lawyer noted its application, which had to be reviewed first by the Utah Supreme Court’s Office of Legal Services Innovation and authorized by the state’s Supreme Court, was unanimously approved.
To be sure, Rocket Lawyer has a presence in Odgen, Utah, and has offered its online legal services—which include legal document drafting, legal advice and access to a network of attorneys—in the state prior to its approval for the regulatory sandbox.
I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking. Since achieving CEDS certification, I’ve noticed immediate recognition from my organization, colleagues, and current and prospective clients.They acknowledge they are more comfortable working with a person who has taken time to seek such certification. CEDS has certainly been worth the small investment and should continue to beget returns for years and years to come.

I get bombarded with all kinds of e-discovery stuff – news, blogs and whatnot. Let me tell you, you guys send the absolute best! I send it to all my partners and sales folks. I said, who are these guys? I have to get to know them better!

As a trial lawyer, day-to-day information processing is daunting for my client service. I’ve come to rely on ACEDS to keep me on the ‘edge’ of the curve on e-discovery. It’s a source I ‘ping’ ASAP.
